(Telegraphotps-Harrigan) Easy Win Seen For Tax Bill By EDMOXD LeBRBIOX WASHINGTON (API Sponsors of a massive tax reform and relief bill pre- dicted it "will get votes like motherhood" as the House headed toward voting on the legislation. Some Criticism In debate members have criti- cized individual provisions, but there has been little indication o( votes against the over-all is not open to amendment except by the Ways Means Commiltee. "It will get voles like mother- Rep. Sam Gibbons. D- Fla., a Ways and Means mem- ber, told newsaen. "Who can vole against giving everybody at least a 5 per cent tax The vote to send the bill to the Senate was expected late today. A 265-145 procedural vote Wednesday killed any chance el opening up the bill to general amendments. This scuttled the plan cl some members to try to knock out a provision extending the income surtax at S per cent for the first sir months of U7J. The Ways and Means Com- mittee had two amendments considered certain ot adoption. One puts into effect its last-min- ute change in the bill to make lax rate reductions it says will insure a 5 per cent cut to all. The other changes the method of calculating depletion on oil shale. The effect is to encourage ultimate production of oil from shale, still in pilot stage. During Tuesday's delate, sev- eral members from oil produc- states, criticized the bill's] provision to cut the oil depletion allowance. But Rep. George Bush. R- Tex., who led otf Ibe discussion, said he is "over-all for the legis- lation." The fight over oil depletion is considered certain to be re- newed in the Senate. Busa said he thints in this area, "the committee went too far." Defenders ot the depletion al- lowance say it is needed to en- courage exploration for more petroleum reserves. Rep. George H. Mahon, 0- Tei.. said he is concerned that "some of the provisions ca oil may be damaging not only to the oil industry, but the general economy of the country." But Rep. Thomas P. O'Neill Jr., D-Mass., complaining "there is no real tax reform said "the changes in oil .depletion are a joke and nothing is done about drilling allow- ances."

Under previous deals, the U.S. Is-already selling Israel both types of aircraft. The Phantom Jets are estimated to cost million to (4 million and the Skytawks about Jl million, with the exact cost depending on the type of equipment included on both planes.

Detailed talks are ex- pected lo get underway this autumn, Informants said. Israeli officials are reported lo have renewed their earlier expressions of interest that the Phantoms be equipped with racks suitable for carrying atomic weapons. Previously, the U.S. has rejected such pleaj and insisted that Israel agree not to use American supplied Jetj to carry such weapons. Israel's position Is lhat she U not "an atomic power" and will not "be the first lo intro- duce" atomic weapons Into the Middle East. Birt most western specialists estimate that Israel can produce such weapons with- in three to six months.

A'o Choice But some states and cities TAX REFORM t Narrow Victory for ABM, But .Deployment Uncertain By CARL P. LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON (AP) Two dramatic Senate votes have giv- en President a narrow victory for his Safeguard pro- one Republican op- ponent says he still doesn't think the missile defense system will be deployed. "I seriously doubt that Safe- guard will ever be Sen.' Clifford P. Case of New Jersey said after Wednesday's showdown voting. And Sen. John Sherman Coop- er, R-Ky., one of the leaders of the anti-Safeguard forces, said he doubts the Pentagon expects to be able to deploy Safeguard oon. Cooper (old reporters the Pen- tagon plans to spend 1120 mil- lion this year on advanced anti- ballistic re- search, beyond Safeguard, al- though the sum Is not mentioned in the report on the legislation currently before the Senate. The decisive ABM votes, after months of controversy and weeks of debate, came Wednes- day on two somewhat similar amendments aimed at barring deployment of the Safeguard system but continuing ABM re search. Neither would have eliminat- ed any of the million ear- marked for the ABM in the J20 billion military procurement au- thorization bill First Amendment The first, offered by Sen. Mar- garet Chase Smith, R-Maine, failed on a 50-50 tie. Vice Presi- dent Spiro T. Agoew cast a 51st but unnecessary negative vote. Mrs. Smith's proposal was to bar any further spending except for components such as radars and computers. Then the Senate voted 51-49 against the amendment by Sens. Cooper and Philip A. Hart, D- Mich., who have led the year- long fight against ABM. Their proposal would have limited the Safeguard program to research and development with no de- ployment or site acquisition. Sens. Clinton P. Anderson, D- N.M., and John J. Williams, R- Del., ended their silence on the ABM (o join the administration In opposing the amendments. A While House spokesman said after the voting that Presi- dent Nixon "is very pleased, ol course." But he said no state- ment would be issued. The Senate is the big test for Ihe ABM program, since Ihs House is considered lo have a substantial majority favoring Safeguard. Although Wednesday's voting was billed as the crucial test for ABM, another proposed compro- mise was scheduled for a today in the Senate. Sen. Thorn- is J. Mclniyre, D-N.H., spon- sored the amendment to deploy ABM computers and but not missiles. Both sides predicted the Me- fntyre amendment would fail by i considerable margin. Other ABM amendments possible, but none is expected.
